Geneva, Switzerland

    On 20 May 2011, The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) organized a side-event about JMA's emergency responses to the massive earthquake affecting Japan on the 11th of March 2011 during the Congress-16. The purpose of the side-event was to share the lessons learnt from “The 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake”. At the event, the JMA's emergency response to the earthquake was highly evaluated as one of the best examples of disaster risk managements by the WMO secretariat and WMO Members. The detail on the event is available at the WMO website.
